Why GCFBC Child Care Center?

I’m so delighted to welcome you to Greater Cleveland Faith Based Collaborative GCFBC Academy educational childcare center. My name is Patricia TrotterSmith and I am the Academy Director. I have certification in organizational leadership and I am currently obtaining my associate’s degree in early childhood education as well as 10 years of experience as a habilitation specialist and manager. 

Our teachers and management team take great pride in providing you with the best child care available. Our teachers have an average of ten years of experience and a combined experience of 85 years! I can confidently say GCFBC Academy offers the best childcare enrichment and private preschool care in Warrensville Heights, Ohio

We offer premium child care services in an educational and nurturing environment for children ages 1 years of age to 5 years old. I love managing our school because the families and staff here make up a close-knit environment. I run the school as an extension of my family, and I truly enjoy watching our children learn and grow!

The GCFBC Academy was established in 2015 and provides families with first-rate child care and early childhood education. We offer a range of opportunities for children to explore, learn and grow, adhering to the highest standards of excellence and care. The GCFBC Academy is a branch of The Tabernacle Summer Day Camp that has been operating for over ten years. Last year 2014 we opened 10 new Summer Camp locations through our collaborative partnership. This year 2015 we have branched to Columbus, Ohio to open seven summer camp locations and look forward to the opening of GCFBC Academy.

I am confident in our ability to support your child’s learning and developmental needs. Call us to schedule a tour of our facility and see why GCFBC Academy is considered a leading education-driven center.
